SimplePleaures_ImageAs part of Glasgow’s Green Year 2015 the official ‘re-opening’ of the recently upgraded section of the National Cycle Network route 7 that runs from Whiteinch to Yoker in west Glasgow and the official launch of the Simple Pleasures Easily Found map for west Glasgow will take place at 1.30pm on Friday 27 March 2015 at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, G14 0BL.

The re-opening and Simple Pleasures map launch event is being hosted by Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) as part of a week long series of events and activities that are taking place to celebrate the completion of the £250,000 project to upgrade the section of the cycle path. The project has been funded by Glasgow City Council and Sustrans Scotland and is part of a wider investment programme in improving cycling infrastructure across the City.

Route7G14UpgradeBothThe Simple Pleasures map has been produced by Scottish Natural Heritage in partnership with DRCET to celebrates Glasgow’s natural assets and aims to help connect people with where they live and to where they want to go – local parks, the canal and places of interest. The map is based on a 10 mile circuit linking the cycle path to the Forth & Clyde canal tow path and back to the cycle path via Whitecrook, Knightswood and Victoria Parks and other local green spaces.

Logo_EFQM_C2E1star2015We are delighted to announce that we recently successfully completed an external project validation and we have achieved EFQM Committed to Excellence 1 Star recognition, which is valid for two years.

The Committed to Excellence programme is a European-wide recognition scheme, which was an ideal practical starting point for us embarking on an improvement programme.  Achieving Committed to Excellence demonstrates to our staff, volunteers and customers that we are serious about continuous improvement and being as good as we can be.

We are working hard at developing a culture of self-assessment and continual improvement – so if you have any comments on the work we do and how we do it or any suggestions for what we could be doing then please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

The move follows feedback from users and requests from businesses and the public. They will be set up at transport hubs and areas of high footfall where there is likely to be most demand.
